Tidying Up After Spammers/Trollers
Posted 01 September 2013 - 09:44 PM
Can I request, that when banning the spammers/trollers, that you delete all there posts as well? 9 times out of 10, they have joined the same day; so you aren't going to accidentally delete anything valuable.
I'm an admin on a few non-gaming forums, and this is something that we do for members who have just registered to spam on the forum.
For older members who have turned into a spammer, we just ban them and delete there spammy posts; because during their time on the forums, they might have some valuable posts buried in some threads somewhere.

Alright you inconsiderate human being, next time you need help, don't come to us puny moderators. Also, I'm not going to delete the post above me.
But seriously, deleting posts is a slightly lengthy process on the current software. So, unless something needs to be absolutely deleted, we generally don't bother. Hopefully, this will change when we move over to the new forums.
